Horses rescued from Miami slaughterhouse

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Horses being slaughtered for their meat: It's both disgusting and a reality at a massive slaughterhouse in South Florida.

Police busted the place in Miami. Now, 10 of the rescued horses are at Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control. They say they agreed to take the horses because there was simply no room for them down south.

Officials say what was going on at that slaughterhouse was sickening. "When you are in our industry, you think, what you see that you can never see anything worse, and for someone who is my counterpart in another agency to say this is the worst I've ever seen has to be very bad."

Animal care and control needs to adopt these horses out and, more importantly, in these tough economic times, pay for the cost of food and housing.

Contact animal care and control if you can help at (561) 233-1200.
